My boyfriend and I purchased a Groupon for this resort and we had a fabulous time! Our room was clean, the food and drinks were great, and we had such a memorable trip. We recommend taking the speedboats to Paradise Island too! That was a highlight of the trip.

In all of Playa Dorada, Gran Ventana always comes out on top. Friendly staff, great food, a great beach bar and luch bar at the beach. The water is calmer at Gran Ventana, sheltered around the corner and in the bay. It does get a bit warm as there is no breeze through the complex, but it's mush better than... More

So you know how every town has the mall that used to be nice but now there is a new mall down the road that is way nicer and everyone goes there instead? Yeah, Puerto Plata has become the ghetto mall of the D.R. The room is just that, a room. It's comparable to a Best Western and is nothing... More

The six days that we were there were wonderful! The food is very good. They have 3 specialty restaurants that you need to make reservations for as well as the buffet. Because it was not high season, there was only one specialty restaurant open each night. There is a beautiful main swimming pool with a swim up bar and lots... More

My wife and I first visited the Gran Ventana in 1998 and have been returning more than once a year ever since, a total of 31 visits in total. When we read some of the less flattering reviews on Trip Adviser, we find ourselves asking the question, where did they actually stay?, it certainly bears no resemblance to the hotel... More

It was a very pleasing stay at this small hotel beginning with a good welcome fruit drink, easy listening music, restored rooms and one important point to me; awesome food. Best of all is to know these were made possible by the great manager, my old friend Oscar. Keep the great work and definitely I recommend it. Javier Espejo

I stayed at Gran Ventana in August and I have to say that this had to be one of the best vacations I have ever been on!
